Hello Experts!

I am learning basics of linux.

I have got a file with lots of lines.

I know how to find proper lines using grep but I do not know how to create output file with my result which would be sorted.

Could you please give me any hint about it?

Thank you!

As you're learning, one of the basics is that you can send output of one command to the next using the pipe character, like this:

cat file
cat file | grep pattern
cat file | grep pattern | sort

and then redirect the output to a file by adding the redirect > character:

cat file ...   > outputfile
0

@ozo - cat is just an example in my general explanation, I could have written strings instead...
